On Earth Day, April 22, 2018, We Don’t Have Time presents the #WeDontHaveTime Climate Conference. Prominent speakers and participants will join this virtual event to be broadcasted live online for everyone. It marks the launch of #WeDontHaveTime and is the first global ”no-fly” event of its kind. Keynote speakers include Jeffrey Sachs, Stuart Scott, Pam Pearson, Dennis Meadows and Elizabeth Woodworth and more.

Rituraj Phukan, Chief Operating Officer of Walk For Water, the Hyderabad based group leading a global ‘universal safe water access’ campaign, has been invited to speak about the Indian water crisis and solutions. He is the only speaker from Asia among the luminaries, alongside leading scientists, academics, activists, conservationists and others from Europe, Africa and the Americas.

We Don’t Have Time is building a social media platform and a movement, aimed at raising awareness, encouraging solutions and demanding action from world leaders regarding climate change and overuse of ecological resources. To kick off the initiative, the organization will host an online conference on climate change and on how to expand the global movement to combat climate change. Panel members will round-up and discuss and the online audience will be able to join the discussion.

Ingmar Rentzhog, CEO and founder of ‘We Don’t Have Time, says that “The goal of our platform is to use social media to expand and empower the global climate movement. We are a tech-startup with global ambitions, so organizing a virtual conference featuring high profile speakers is natural for us. Few people fly more than climate activists and researchers attending environmental conferences all over the world. By doing a “no-fly event” we want to show everyone, not just climate activists, that an alternative is possible. But above all, we want to inspire, educate and encourage people to combat climate change.”

The conference will feature speakers Jeffrey Sachs, Dennis Meadows, Stuart Scott, Pam Pearson and Maria Mähl from the US; Smart Chukwuma Amaefula from Nigeria; Hanna Lindquist from Kenya; Rituraj Phukan from India; Dan Old from the UK; Peter Carter, Cathy Orlando and Elizabeth Woodworth from Canada; Richard Bergfors, Robert Falck, Christofer Friberg, Anders Wijkman, Daniel Lundh, Helena Lindemark, Tove Ahlström and Ingmar Rentzhog from Sweden. Conference host will be meteorologist Martin Hedberg and TV host and producer Julia Messelt, both from Sweden.

The conference will feature three segments. The first, ”Reality,” deals with the state of the climate today and the consequences of global warming. The second, ”Solutions,” discusses technical innovation and policy initiatives whereas the third and last segment, ”Action,” focuses on how to raise awareness globally and build a movement that demands change.

2018 We Don’t Have Time Climate Conference will be broadcast on YouTube Live, Facebook Live and on Twitter Periscope April 22, 2018, 15:00 – 19:00 CEST (3 p.m-7 p.m). To learn more and register, go to www.wedonthavetime.events
